Ballistics by the inch

More testing of more calibers coming.

Hey everyone,

Well, in less than two weeks we’ve seen over 200,000 hits to the site, and the news of our project propagate widely through the gun community and even beyond.  There’s been a lot of discussion about our efforts, almost uniformly positive, and this is really good to see.  Over 700 people have downloaded the data spreadsheets, and almost 100 have downloaded the emails documenting the project from start to finish.

This response, and the comments we have seen around the web, have prompted us to plan to do another round of testing this next spring.  Sorry for the delay, but we need some lead time to have the custom barrels made and to plan our schedules.

After discussion, we’ve decided to test the following calibers:

  • .327 Federal Magnum
  • .41 Magnum
  • 10mm

We feel that these help fill out the other calibers we’ve already tested, extending the coverage of the most common handgun calibers actually carried (with the exception of the .327 mag – we just want to see how that actually performs).

So, something to look forward to in the new year!

Cheers –

Jim D.
